is this pipe able to be threaded

as I need 12 feet sections I wanted to check and see if it can be threaded and how much weight will it hold placed in a horizontal position above the ground ? Thanks Paul Jones
Asked by: Paul
Hi Paul, No, PEX cannot be threaded. If you need to connect this pipe to a female connection, use a 1/2" MNPT SharkBite fitting. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Brass-Push-to-Connect-x-Male-Pipe-Thread-Adapter-U120LFA/202270505?keyword=u120lfa

Can you expand on not using Pex tubing in a "UV" situation? Is this just direct sunlight?

I want to install PEX tubing in my basement. Sunlight comes in through some of the windows. Do I need to be sure it's up in the joists and not hanging down where the sun can reach it?
Asked by: WisconsinDIYer
PEX tubing should be insulated/buried when using in outside applications. Inside should not be an issue, but can vary depending on the amount of sunlight coming through the window. It is always best to hang the pipe up in the joists to prevent any exposure to sunlight.

Can PEX be cemented to PVC ?

I'm building outside garden box covers and I'd like to use PEX as the curved "hoop" top structures (like a mini-green house cover). can I cement or glue the PEX pieces to PVC Elbow or Tee connectors ?
Asked by: Knelson51
Hello, if understand correctly you will not be using this for potable water distribution, that being the case it should be OK for you to glue fittings to these. If you do decide to glue, you will need to use CPVC fittings, not PVC because SharkBite PEX is Copper Tube Size and PVC is Iron Pipe Size the fittings for PVC are a different size. Another low cost alternative is you could use Plastic PEX Barb fittings and stainless steel clamps, both sold in the PEX bay. This will hold up better than gluing CPVC fittings to PEX. Thank you for your interest in our products and good luck with your project.

1/2 in. x 5 ft. White PEX Pipe is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great length of PEX for small jobs and I recently used it to replace a plumbing assembl... This is a great length of PEX for small jobs and I recently used it to replace a plumbing assembly in my laundry room. 5 ft was all I needed. I like PEX because it can bend easily and saves time over using multiple copper fittings. I noticed the factory cuts are not perfectly flat but I also realized that shark bite fittings dont require an exceptionally flat end to the tubing, it can be a little slanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! We install piles of this stuff!!!! This pex in the straight lenghts is great. We keep this is red and blue stocked on our trucks. We have just about removed all CPVC from the trucks. The customers are awe struck when they see this stuff installed in the color coded fashion, and of course Plumb, level and square.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Great pipe, easy to use, but DO get the pipe cutting tool for square cuts. I did not and it took a bit to get ends square. I could have saved some time with the correct tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install plumbing This system of plumbing can help to make even the "worst" of handymen into a "pro" plumber. Cuts easily. Can make minor bends. Installs easily as part of the entire Shark system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome and easy!! I purchased these to fix leaks in a 5th wheel I bought and it made the repairs ssooooo simple!! I woild advise anyone to use the pex pipe and the Sharkbite fitting other than they are a bit spendy but there are alternatives for tbose too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every home handyman should have this in his garage All the plumbing I've ever done has been with copper piping and sweated or compression fittings. After moving to upstate New York the vast majority of the plumbing I've encountered is PEX tubing. I love it. It's so much more forgiving and easier to work with than ridged pipe. This five foot piece is great to have on hand for quick repairs.
